According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, there were 807,000 hardworking men and women employed as police officers and detectives in law enforcement agencies around the country in 2016. When you add in sheriff's patrol officers at the local, state and federal levels, that number climbs by another 662,000. When you add in the United States army, air force, coast guard, Marine Corps and navy, the number increases by an additional 1.08 million. Taken together, that means that there are over 2.5 million people, right this second, who have all dedicated their lives to a single focus: the protection, security and defense of every man, woman and child in this country.
But all of this demands the question: who is going to protect them? With so many people committed to the safety of the United States of America, who is going to step up and watch over their safety?
This, in essence, is why ballistic solutions like those provided by Security PRO USA are so important. We're talking about more than just bulletproof vests or ballistic shields - we're talking about the most comprehensive selection of advanced detection, inspection and prevention products and services available to watch out for the wellbeing of those who watch out for us every day.
Why Quality Ballistic Solutions Matter
When people think about equipment like bulletproof vests or ballistic helmets, they're often working off of a misconception that these items are (by design) far too heavy or bulky for everyday use. Because protection is the top priority, they're only reserved for the most extreme of situations.
In truth, high quality ballistic solutions are less about preparing for any one particular situation and more about guaranteeing that these hardworking men and women always have the right tool for the right job at exactly the right time. Because of that, they can't be reserved for only the most extreme situations because you never know when that extreme situation is going to strike to begin with.
Ballistic blankets, for example, can be used for everything from acting as a portable barricade to reinforcement for windows or door panels during a hurricane. Typically, ballistic gear needs to be both dependable and versatile enough to keep someone protected regardless of how the conditions around that person happen to change.
Think about it like this: someone from the FBI, the Department of Homeland Security and the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) would probably have three very different uses for ballistic gear, but they all need access to that gear at a moment's notice just the same. This is why we at Security PRO USA have committed ourselves to providing the best protective gear in the security industry today, regardless of its intended purpose - because when it comes to the people who are willing to lay down their lives to protect ours, nothing less will suffice.
